Yeah, I'm only doing a Sociology Degree with Major in Behavioral Psychology. I don't understand how any of it works.

 

Tell me why we hate the word stereotype due to it being used on us.

The word has been used to refer to any and all types of people, not just race or one race in particular.

Apples to Oranges. We have a specific stereotypical attribute in our race.

Why? Because it won't matter what I say--that's why.

It kinda sucks having curly hair. Not because it looks bad or anything but it's just more maintenance and harder to style. I could definitely see her hair being a problem if it's blocking kids view of the whiteboard or something but it doesn't really look like shes tall enough for that to be a problem.

The original story was updated.  Looks like she "won't" be facing expulsion now (most likely because of the media backlash):

Hello,

She is spoilt. Her parents are a travesty and the school is 100% correct. Kid needs to get real. 
 
You go to school to LEARN. It is not a fashion statement.

And her fashion statement keeps her from learning?
 
 

Imagine, if anyone of any race, just let their hair do whatever with little care to it.

Thats what I do to it: I just clean it and thats it. I dont comb my hair and let it grow naturally. I get up from bed and go to work. Noone has said anything ever about my hair.

Yup same thing I was going to post.

The only reason I can see her being told something about her hair is that she is sitting and her hairs doesnt allow someone behind behind them see the class.

All that being said, it is a private school. Get with their rules or get out.

The instant that I saw the title of the thread, I knew this was going to be about somebody's '70s afro-do. LOL

Funny how the school didn't have a problem with her hair until she complained about students teasing her and instead of dealing with the students they tell her to change her hair.

I dont see anything wrong with her hair, however, I would hate if I had to seat behind her in class  :woot:

Girl says school threatening expulsion over her 'natural form'.
Argues why can't I go to school without clothes on, it's natural.

Something being natural doesn't automatically make it ok. It's natural to go to the bathroom too but I don't want people taking a dump in public spaces. It's a private school and if they want to restrict haircuts they can. I'd certainly put what her hair looks like in a category with other expressive ones like mohawks. If she doesn't like the rule take her money (I assume since it's a private school she pays to go there) and go elsewhere, their loss. I do hope it's at least clean though.

This makes too much common sense. It'll never work.
